Bradley Arant Boult Cummings LLP is pleased to announce that partner Marc James Ayers has been appointed to serve on the Alabama Advisory Committee on the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights, Alabama’s fact-finding committee reporting to the independent, bipartisan federal agency. His two-year term is effective immediately.
“We congratulate Marc on his appointment to represent Alabama on behalf of the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights,” said Firm Chairman Beau Grenier. “This prestigious honor is acknowledgement of Marc’s thorough knowledge of local and state civil rights issues.”
The U.S. Commission on Civil Rights plays a vital role in advancing civil rights through objective and comprehensive investigation, research, and analysis on issues of fundamental concern to the federal government and the public. The State Advisory Committee’s appointed citizen-volunteers are well-versed in their state’s civil rights issues and represent a variety of backgrounds, skills, experiences, and perspectives—promoting vigorous debate and full exploration of significant issues.
Mr. Ayers focuses his practice on Appellate Litigation, handling numerous appeals in the U.S. Courts of Appeals, the Alabama Supreme Court, the Alabama Court of Civil Appeals, and other state appellate courts. He has also represented clients on petitions for certiorari and amicus curiae briefs to the U.S. Supreme Court.
Mr. Ayers holds a JD from the Cumberland School of Law at Samford University and a BA in Philosophy from Florida State University. In addition, he undertook graduate studies in theology and apologetics at Reformed Theological Seminary.
